EPCH-3/1(7)-POLICY/2020-21   

18th June, 2020

 

To,

 

All Member Exporters,

 

Subject: - Non-tariff measure (SPS and TBT) issues pertaining to Handicrafts sector -reg 

 

Dear Member(s),

          As you may be aware non –tariff barriers (NTBs) have gained prominence as alternative trade policy instruments for domestic industry protection or for regulating trade. NTBs are barriers to trade that are not tariffs and include both trade – restricting measures (quotas, technical barriers, etc) and trade – promoting measures (export subsidies etc ).

          The international scenario today is that countries are looking for even small opportunities to raise non-tariff measures. The Forum of WTO Sanitary and Phytosanitary Measures (SPS) and Technical Barriers to Trade (TBT) Committees also give an opportunity to raise issues which are affecting trade bilaterally. 

You are requested to kindly let us know whether you have faced any such Non tariff barriers during exports to any country.  The same is important for us to know as it will help the Govt. of India to take up the issue with the respective country at the highest level and would be helpful in devising the mechanism to combat such issues at our end.

           You may forward us any such issue that you may have encountered on or before 30th June 2020 at policy@epch.com.

 

Thanking you,

Yours faithfully,

 

 

(R. K. VERMA)

EXECUTIVE DIRECTOR
